http://ubuntuforums.org – Hello group, Here is my situation. I have tried installing Ubuntu Desktop 12.10 and 12.04.2 with DRBL. I go through all the configs and DRBL/Clonezilla works great. Now rather than having to be on the console to update/install software etc I would like to just use a vnc like tightvncserver so that I can vnc in from whatever client or other computer. I do an "apt-get install tightvncserver" and no issues installing on either install (12.10 or 12.04.2) however once I do a vncserver -geometry 1024x768 I can no longer login after a reboot. The only way I can get back in as a regular (Hardware)
